20 years ago, a young woman named Christa March spent several hours in a shopping mall talking to teen moms she saw. She was wondering why they weren't in school. After speaking to them and listening to their trials and challenges, her heart felt for them so strongly that she was lead to start an organization to help such young ladies.
I have been a small part of this wonderful organization for almost a year and a half and am in awe of the selflessness and love of the volunteers and the transformations of girls into women who are GOOD mothers and SUCCESSFUL and productive members of society.
As of this date 450 girls (and their children) have graduated from this program. Think of all the changed lives. These girls would not have been able to be where they are today without the help from this program. And their children... think of them.
The photo of the candles (above) was a representation displayed last night of all the women (blue candles) who's lives have been changed and their children (white candles) who's lives are that much better because of this program.
What a glorious example of what God can do through His people to reach out and change lives for good.
